Debut Pikachu & Pichu

Big Town (Japanese: ミレニアムタウン Millennium Town) is an anime-exclusive town in Johto introduced in Pikachu & Pichu. It has since also been featured in Pichu Bros. in Party Panic, Of Meowth and Pokémon, Trouble in Big Town, and Big Meowth, Little Dreams, and it is also the only location visited in Pichu Bros. mini.

The Pokémon Clubhouse

Its Japanese name, Millennium Town, is a reference to its year of introduction, 2000, being the first year of a new millennium. The town was first introduced in the dub in 2001 without a dub name. It remained without a dub name until 2005, when Pokémon Chronicles simply called the town Big Town in Trouble in Big Town.

The town is known for being the home of the Pichu Bros. constantly making mischief along with their friends Smoochum, Magby, Wooper, and Teddiursa.

A Lapras ferry, taxis, and buses can be found here for transportation.

There are many apartment buildings around here as well as a skyscraper. Notable monuments include Magikarp and Tauros statues and a fountain.
